Trade Four Wheels for Two with Bike Voucher Program

UK Transportation Services is now accepting applicants for its 2018 bicycle voucher program. The program offers qualified applicants each $400 in vouchers - valid at any of the five participating local bike shops - in exchange for agreeing not to purchase a motor vehicle permit for two years.

The vouchers may be used toward the purchase of a bicycle or gear and accessories to outfit a bike that the employee or student already owns. Program participants will also receive 10 single-day permits that may be used on occasions when participants must bring a motor vehicle to campus. Participants may also purchase up to 40 additional single-day permits per fiscal year.

Vouchers are awarded with the goal of reducing the number of motor vehicles on campus. Priority will be given to students and employees who have had a vehicle parking permit for the past fiscal year (July 1 - June 30), but those new to the university will also be considered.

Residential students are not eligible for the bicycle voucher program, but are encouraged to sign up for use of a bicycle through the Big Blue Cycles fleet.

Those who may be interested in bike commuting but are unsure of what route to take are encouraged to take advantage of the personalized commute planning assistance offered by Transportation Services. Visit to sign up.
